Door Supervisor Level 2 (2018 New Specification)

This nationally recognised qualification is the industry standard and enables a door supervisor to apply for a licence to practice.

The qualification is based on the Security Industry Authority (SIA) specification for core competency training for door supervisors, which covers the necessary understanding and skills required by individuals who work to provide a more secure leisure environment. Door supervisors are expected to be dealing with members of the public in licensed premises on a regular basis and hence the need for SIA training in order to carry out their duties effectively; abiding by all laws and regulations. Door supervisors are needed at the point of entry to carefully decide on the suitability of customers entering licensed premises and maintaining order and public safety.

Door supervisors are required to play an active role in the fight against drug abuse and would refuse entry to those who may be in breach of criminal law, licensing law or ejecting those who are in breach of these laws or who may be placing the management's licence at risk.
